  • How many adult caretakers were working at the time of the incident?
  • What are the backgrounds of the people who were working at the daycare at the time of the incident?

  • What did each person working at the daycare do when they became aware that your little one was in danger?
  • Were the caretakers adequately trained in CPR and other life-saving processes?
  • How long did it take someone to call 911?
  • How many children were at the facility and were there more than the number for which the daycare was licensed?
